He is the Director and Founder of the Price Kong Dental Practice Group (“PKDPG”) whose mission is to “Create and develop business systems and procedures to assist dentists in reaching their financial goals by leveraging the tax compliance of a business as a foundation for improvement.”
The PKDPG provides tax and accounting services with a focus on tax planning. In addition other services are provided to our dental clients including practice purchase analysis, transition work, monitoring of financial goals and results, improving cash flow, budgeting and ongoing consulting, coaching and estate planning. The PKDPG model is based on continuing education both for our dental clients and our professional staff.
Several years ago Chris noted that newly graduated dentists needed additional assistance to navigate the dental business world and developed systems and coaching models specifically tailored to the emerging dental entrepreneur. A commitment to investing in his clients is a key component of the PKDPG.
Chris has lectured at dental associations, societies, conventions, study groups and schools. All programs operate under the Price College Program as a tribute to our founder Ron Price who focused on dentists and instilled an educational environment in the firm since 1969. Chris is also the CPA for the OBI Foundation and contributes his and the PKDPG time to the organization to assist it in achieving its goals to its members.
